Microsoft announced Xbox Games With Gold lineup for February 2019, which features disappointments, such as Assassin's Creed Rogue being for Xbox 360, but everyone liked the addition of Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy for Xbox.

Fans being disappointed in getting Assassin's Creed Rogue for Xbox 360 doesn't have much to do with the game's quality, as most of them are actually glad to get the title, but because it is yet another one in the line of Assassin's Creeds Microsoft's subscribers received in recent months.

On the other hand, most of them do seem to be interested in hopping into the boots of an Assassin who found himself disillusioned with the organisation's means to achieve their goals and eventually became one of their worst nightmares. The game's estimated retail price is $29,99 but it is way cheaper on PC, as it is priced at $19,99 on Steam. On top of that, Steam sales often offer Assassin's Creed Rogue at massive discounts. Subscribers will be able to add Rogue to their libraries from 01 to 15 February 2019.

Meanwhile, everyone was happy to see a classic title come as a freebie for Xbox. Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is what seems to generate the most hype in Xbox Live Games With Gold lineup for February 2019. Players will get this game for Xbox, but considering it's backwards compatible, they will be able to play it on Xbox One. It seems like nostalgia did its magic as players seemingly can't wait for 16 February 2019 to grab it.

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon is a metroidvania game that is a spiritual successor to Castlevania series and it will be available for the entire duration of February 2019.

Meanwhile, Super Bomberman R will be up for grabs from 16 February 2019 to 15 March 2019 but subscribers don't seem to be too thrilled with this title, often calling it overpriced as they find the $39,99 price tag to be a bit too much. Still, this is a similar situation as with Assassin's Creed Rogue where its addition to the roster is not criticised for the game being lacklustre, but for external issues.
